94.9 WDKB and First National Bank are recognizing our Hometown Heroes! Each week, we will highlight First-Responders, Nurses, Teachers, Good Samaritans, and more for all they do in the places they live and work in DeKalb County & Northern Illinois. Our Hometown Hero this week is:

Ellingsworth Webb

Thanks to Tia in DeKalb for nominating Ellingsworth! She wrote:

Ellingsworth does so much for our community! He is a board member for the DeKalb County Youth Service Bureau, DeKalb County Community Gardens, and the DeKalb Area Agricultural Heritage Association. He is also a member of the Kiwanis Club of DeKalb, an Election Judge/Deputy Registrar for the DeKalb County Clerk & Recorder Office, and a Commissioner for the Citizen’s Community Enhancement Commission! And get this…he still works full time as the Property Manager at Eden’s Garden!

Ellingsworth is a “doer” and is actively engaged in many organizations. He is passionate, kind, always smiling, and a true asset to DeKalb.


Nominate someone that you believe is helping to make DeKalb County a better place and they could be featured as our next Hometown Hero!
